Made and froze 4 servings of tingua poblana, pork with smoky tomato sauce and potatoes. That involved cutting up a pork roast, and I still have the piece in the back left that I need to find something to do with. I'll probably sous vide it for pork stir-fry. The front left is fat, silverskin and other discarded bits.

Made and froze a package of breakfast sausage links, for breakfast or sausage and green pepper stir-fry.

I broke down a whole chicken. I vacuum sealed and froze the wings (for Buffalo chicken wings), one of the breasts (cut into two servings of a little more than 6.0 oz. each) and the carcass and other random bits to make chicken stock after the next time I break down a chicken. It only took a couple good whacks with the Asian bone cleaver made the carcass flat enough to easily fit in the vacuum sealed bag.

Dinner: Fried chicken (new recipe), with 3.0 oz. seasoned Cascadian organic shoestring French fries.

And 2 glasses of Santa Julia malbec.


And I tasted one of the pickled jalapeños. They're really good! Definitely hot, I still have a little burn going on.
